Afterparty - Update april 13
[ See last post for new images ]
I'll start some sketch thread here, with a number of things i drew and i try to draw and post some more every day.
Trying to capture more dynamic poses and learn faces. They all look alike too much!

Thats great, I especially like the very first and last one.
I really like how your sketches convey a lot of action instead of very static poses too How do you get those action poses? Was curious if you use a reference or from imagination (or I guess it could be both)?
Don't forget to read the stickied FAQ's before posting

...tries to draw???
The first one, the soldier, is great!
Really good studies too. :waves:

Robolus - thnx, i like the soldier too.
Marie, thnx. I did most of these while i was away so i did not have much ref - for the soldier i did obviously. I try to visualise an action in my mind, something a character in a movie or story would do. Then i think of a nice camera angle and try to draw it.
I need to do much more life study - fortunately my first classes start in a week! I'm still trying to get back some skills in rendering and sketching, if i look at some of the drawings in this section i always find it remarkable that they look so crisp and to me my own stuff looks so 'worked' and like drawn with a blunt object :-/ Perhaps i need to draw bigger than A4/letter size ...
Well practice practice!

Nice to see you posting again. You´re still looking for historical roots, aren´t you?
I like the last badge of clothing studies - the are quite consistent in character. The only figure that doesn´t fit completely is the one in the upper right. A longer Jacket or some cloth/gambeson under the breastplate would fit it better into row with the others.
A lot of the mannikins you´re doing are really good - sometimes you tend to use big heads (as I tend to use too big hands ) but that´s o.k. with me.
Good to see your stuff again.

thanx! yeah - mostly medieval influences. I bought a number of Angus mcBride books from osprey, they're really nice. Thanx for the tip you gave me on that one! I also have a costume history book now but that focuses more on later periods.
I want to be able to draw dynamic figures with dynamic clothing that;s why i need to practice a lot. I can;t draw any clothing really so now i just placed a number of copies of a basic body on a paper and i'm drawing clothing on that. Dynamic clothes come next!
And you're right about the heads - need to pay attention to that.

More costumes from the middle ages
Tell me what you think of it
Some of the designs are directly inspired by Angus McBride (Osprey books)
